He stood there, looking at me forgetfully.

"Remember me? From last night? We shared saliva and a whole lot of other body fluids?" Stella asked.

"Yeah, I don't remember a lot about last night. I was pretty tanked. Don't take it personal."

"Sorry? Don't take it personal? It was very personal," she replied.

His blue eyes stared at her, puzzled by her strong reaction. Not a flicker of a memory resonated in him.


Next one:

morosely

After learning his wife had forgotten to buy French bread to go with with the soup, he ate his borscht morosely.

After learning his wife had forgotten to buy French bread to go with the soup, he slurped the borscht in slow, lethargic sips as he studied her eyes for the moment she would scream, "Stop!"

Next adverb:

unabashedly

She knew she couldn't sing, but her coworkers insisted she try karaoke. So she unabashedly went to the mic.

She knew she couldn't sing, but her coworkers insisted she try karaoke. So she sauntered up to the mic, determined to give them a rendition of "Feelings" that would make their eyeballs bleed.

Allow me!

"I've never done this before...well...at least not with a man who used to be a woman," she said coyly.

She let her towel drop to the floor and resisted the urge to cover herself. "I've never done this before...well...at least not with a man who used to be a woman."

I told my mother-in-law I'm allergic to seafood, so she maliciously put shellfish in every dish she made.

I told my mother-in-law I'm allergic to seafood, so the dinner table in at my mother-in-law's looked like the judgement table for Iron Chef: Battle Shellfish.  She started off with clam chowder and oysters rockfeller, chilled down by tail-on shrimp with cocktail sauce, and washed down with gobletfuls of Clamato.  For the entree, she served crab au gratin with a side shrimp fried rice.  And for dessert, the piece de resistance, her special lobster, grapefruit, and avocado sorbet.
